I just purchased your “Get Ready to Cruise the Bahamas” course…. WOW! Thank you for creating the course. It is the most comprehensive guide I have read (and I have been studying this subject for months).
The information is everything you need to know and it’s explained thoroughly and simply. We have not been to the Bahamas yet but hope to be leaving by next month. I’ve been super stressed about all of the things we need to accomplish. But doing this online course helped me to know what we have to do and how to do it. Feeling more confident about our journey now!
